My second visit to the zoo – I have now got my moneys worth of my yearly membership!
I am still in the ‘have to see everything’ mood and am therefore enjoying looking at the animals rather than being seriously committed to sketching. I only arrived after lunch (another great feature of a yearly membership – don’t need to make a big day of it)
I knew it wasn’t a private home so did some research since getting home – its known as The Manor and is it home to a Theosophist community – I guessed it was something along those lines.
Amazing the unexpected places you find when you just go exploring….
BTW, I had a morning at home. I have been doing some research for next Saturday’s sketchcrawl. We are going to sketch along Macquarie St so I have been reading up on early Australian Architecture – been lovin’ it and getting a real buzz from understanding the hardships in those early days and relating it to places and things I know (was never that interested in local history as a kid…)
This is just a doodle I did of Elizabeth Farm while reading my book – this is the oldest building in Australia.
